Women Against Fundamentalism Meeting - 21/10/06

Women Against Fundamentalism have organised a meeting, which unfortunately clashes with the Feminist Fightback conference. It is good news to see them resurrected as I remember when they had their launch meeting way back in 1989 and I became a supporter then.
Women, the 'War on Terror' and Fundamentalism
Saturday 21st October , 2pm - 5pm
Upper Hall, University of London Union, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HY

A meeting organised by Women Against Fundamentalism.
Please join us to discuss the threat to progressive movements – in the mainstream as well as in Black, migrant and refugee communities – by both the state's 'War on Terror' and by the collusion of elements on the Left with fundamentalist religious leaders who are attempting to undermine rights and freedoms.

Speakers: Pragna Patel, Southall Black Sisters
Nadje Al-Ali, Act Together: Women's Action for Iraq
Mai Ghoussoub, writer, artist and founder of Saqi Books
ChairJulia Bard, Jewish Socialists' Group

Entrance £5/£2
